Top 3 Makeup Must-Haves

Makeup Favorites

Last week my wonderful co-host, Kimberlee, invited me to participate in a feature of five bloggers' Summer Beauty Must-Haves. I thought it would be fun to share my top three picks today. So here's my secret to looking flawless! <--Totally kidding, people. I'm far from flawless, but these products help ;)

1. COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers in Champagne: affordable, go-to eyeshadow. It's a perfect shimmery shade that looks great on all skin tones and sells for just over $3.
2. tarte LipSurgence matte lip stain in fiery: I ALWAYS get complements when I wear it, this perfect deep red color legit stays on for hours. Priced at about $25. I'm actually wearing it in my sidebar image.
3. Urban Decay Naked Skin: sells for roughly $35, a bit pricey, but provides amazing lightweight coverage.

Head over to Kimberlee's post to check out other bloggers' beauty favorites!

Also, if you didn't catch my Rizzoli & Isles set visit recap from Friday, check it out! I had a blast mingling with the show's stars. Tune in for the season 5 premiere tomorrow at 9/8c on TNT!

And finally, I accepted a contract position! I was laid off in February and while it's been amazing to not work, I needed some funds to finance the rest of my 2014 travel. I'm back at a previous company helping out for a few months. So as I adjust to going back to work, please stick with me. I've been horrible at replying to emails and visiting blogs. I apologize! Hopefully I'll get back into the groove soon.

Congrats on the new job!

I have been wondering about the Urban Decay Naked...I might have to give it a try I am in the market for a new foundation!

Congrats on the job!

I love Cover Girl eyeshadows too. They have great colors & are super inexpensive. So, I don't feel bad if I buy a color and then not like it.
